James Dean's "Rebel Without a Cause" car now in Sacramento

From the California Automobile Museum.

During the height of baseball season, the California Automobile Museum of Sacramento and the National Automobile Museum of Reno entered into a friendly wager around a sixteen-game series pitting the local minor league baseball team, the River Cats, against the Reno Aces.

The bet was that the auto museum in the city of the team that lost the series would loan a famous car from its collection to the museum in the winning city.

If the River Cats won, the 1949 Mercury driven by James Dean in the 1955 movie Rebel Without a Cause would be loaned to the California Automobile Museum. If the Aces won, the National Automobile Museum would be loaned a 1932 Ford raced by legendary driver A.J. Foyt.

Bay Bridge Retrofit Update

Bay Bridge Retrofit Update

In mid-November another milestone is expected to be reached with the suspension portion and full completion expected in 2013.

It is work in several sections that will result in side by side lanes for part of the Bay Bridge into the city and from SF back to Oakland.  There will still be a double deck but it's been reinforced with millions of pounds of steel.

Video simulations from Caltrans are pretty cool.

Johanna says there have been some on Golf Link Drive in Folsom and another viewer reports 30 in the Arden Arcade area. One of our producers says she faced a turkey in the road on several occasions in Davis. Share your road stories with us!

 

 

Help if you get car damage near a construction zone

Help if you get car damage near a construction zone

We had a viewer wonder if there was any help if you got damage to your car near a construction site. His situation was along I-5 from Elk Grove to Florin where several lanes are often closed overnight for shoulder work and repaving. Mark Dinger with the Caltrans District 3 office says there is both a helpline and a website to file a complaint and get some relief. This may be an option for you should you have a similar experience:
